Hello, i wonder if anyone can help, or is experiencing similar problems. I just installed tiscali 56k dial-up on my mother's machine and when the dialer is run everything seems to connect and work fine, and I can surf the internet for a few minutes. But after a few minutes you type in a web address and nothing happens at all. You try to quit and nothing happens, you ctrl alt delete and can't even force quit through task manager. All you can do is pull the plug. Anyone seen this before? i'm running Xp home with 256 Mb ram, shouldn't be a problem.... should it?
